    R1S Megawatt Sliders by Electruck 4x4 - installed photos & review

    My passenger side was the tricky one with the bolt. I figured i got lucky with the drivers side since i did that one first. Not sure if the sides differs slightly. I’m still impressed on how these were designed to use existing bolts with no additional hardware needed. Less bolts to corrode and fail.

    R1S Megawatt Slider with body panels

    Definitely wasn't needed but does give a cleaner look if you ever get run over by a Rivian. Easy cuts via a bandsaw. Both front and rear pieces were connected by original mounting points and screws. I gave the rear some extra clearance for debris to fall out. As for mounting, I decided to use...

    R1S Megawatt Sliders by Electruck 4x4 - installed photos & review

    Just take off panels, loosen some screws and mount sliders. No modification or additional screws/bolts are needed. Underside is partially exposed but non issue. I'm in process of cutting the original panels and fitting it back on just for aesthetics.

    R1S Megawatt Sliders by Electruck 4x4 - installed photos & review

    That’s plenty of time. I took 1.5 hours and I was going slow while talking to a few neighbors passing by. If you’re installing by yourself, I’d sit facing the car with the sliders on your lap and lift it up with your knees. Slide the front at a slight angle in first as theres two bolts to clear.

    R1S Megawatt Sliders by Electruck 4x4 - installed photos & review

    Ordered Megawatt sliders by @electruck4x4 last October, just got delivered yesterday and installed it the same day. The old sayings of "you get what you paid for" and "it's worth the wait" are completely true for these sliders. Hands down, the best sliders on the market. Quality of craftsmanship...

    Slight difference in suspension height (on driver side front corner)

    My driver front side is about .5 inches lower on kneel vs other corners. Probably within spec?

    Scaringe: Autonomy revenues within a year + R2 unveiling likely in Q1 2024

    Probably the same structure as Ford Bluecruise. Ford charges $800 annual or $75 per month. I have it as a year trial in my F150 Limited. Definitely will not be paying extra for the option afterwards to Ford or Rivian.

    Yakima Fatcat or Thule Snowpack?

    What's everyone preference? I know Rivian sells the Fatcats and the OEM bars are made by Yakima. Both Thule and Yakima can be mounted via straps or t-slots. Some reviews mentioned the Yakima whistles and locking mechanism is prone to freezing. While the Fatcats are aesthetically rounder, Thule...

    ATTN Forest Edge interior owners: does your dash look like this?

    It's normal. Some have it, some don't. All depending on the grain and how easy it was to bend. I submitted a ticket and that what was told. It is not isolated to just FE. After some google image research, I noticed others having the same slit. Here's mine.

    No battery disconnect. Tech said he has done the work many times. Took about 15 min.

    Mobile tech fixed dash speaker grill rattle -- details & photos

    Just regular trim tools. Started from the top, the middle has some sort of spring that you have to push in to loosen. Don’t stick anything too deep as the curtain airbag (I think) is in pillar.

    Mobile tech fixed dash speaker grill rattle -- details & photos

    He put foam tape on various pins that snaps the frame into the dash. Basically creating more friction and a tighter fit. Nothing was done to the speakers.

    Mobile tech fixed dash speaker grill rattle -- details & photos

    That is exactly what i had. Put in a service request and they will do exactly what was done on mine. It’s a well known issue internally with Rivian.

    Mobile tech fixed dash speaker grill rattle -- details & photos

    Rivian mobile tech came by and repaired the infamous dash speaker grill rattle by putting some foam/pad on the snap connectors and tightened the metal tabs onto the frame. He mentioned that Rivian now put foam under the metal mesh in between the frame on recent builds. Before it was just the...

    Lapped the Olympic Peninsula today with R1S

    Nice trip! ~$21 for the entire trip, minus ferry, is awesome. That would have cost $120 in gas in my Rover. Did you need to use the Tesla charger or can you limp into the RAN charger and still make it home?

    Recycled emblems

    Dechromed with Abstract Ocean black badges and decided to pimp my charger and wall cabinet by recycling the old emblems. Leave no trace in the landfill I guess.

    Air suspension noise - is it normal?

    By far the noisiest and firmest air suspension I've had. My Range Rover and even my previous 2021 Ram 1500 Limited w/ air was quieter and feels like you're riding on "air".
